Trip Info

While Jomon sugi may be the tree that eveyone wants to see, there are other cryptomeria trees that may not be as old, but are just as impressive and you can usually be alone with them as you sit and have lunch under its canopy. Yamato sugi is one such tree. Anyone wishing to experience the ‘real’ Yakushima forest should consider booking this tour.

Your adventure awaits!
